If you already have flies around your home, there are a range of options available to get rid of the flies efficiently.

Options To Get Rid of Flies

  • Sanitation – eliminate breeding sites with these steps: clean and dry areas around your home, don’t overwater plants and seal outside cracks where water accumulates.
  • Exclusion – Close or screen windows and doorways or install air curtains over doorways that must remain open.
  • Non-Chemical –UV light traps and pheromone traps, as well as strategically-placed glue traps can help to catch adult flies.
  • Insecticides – application of residual insecticides or baits around larval and adult fly resting sites.
  • Bioremediation – will break down grease and organic debris build-up in and around floor drains to eliminate fly breeding areas. Bioremediation service is offered to commercial kitchens.

Many homeowners struggle with do it yourself pest control products, like homemade fly traps, and the results are often less than satisfactory.

Small problems can develop into large ones and this is when many people seek out the services of a professional exterminator.
